- Wedding: November 2013
I’ve been to many showers where the gifts were wrapped in clear cellophane and also hosted one as a Maid/Matron of Honor. I don’t know the derivation of the term, but we call it “California-Style”. You ask the guests to wrap the gifts in cellophane, and then you assign a bridesmaid to collect and display them nicely at the shower so that guests and bride can look at them. You also assign someone to create labels with the name of the gift-giver and stick them on each gift. I love it – it leaves more time for socializing.
